Hello everyone, I am new to this site and I know that I have not yet contributed much to it. I am aware that this site is concerning the disease we all battle in some way or the other, be it self or caregiver, but I would like us to all take a minute and think about all the poor people in Haiti. Some of them who are stil living may be diabetics too. Please let's remember them in our prayers…

When you feel like posting something post anywhere, everyone is interested in what you have to say no matter what. I will keep Haiti in my prayers, I hope for the best and for the Good Lord to wrap his arms around everyone.

The people of Haiti are good people. They suffer much under
normal conditions. Miz Thang its good you started this discussion. We can pray and do what we can with the Red Cross and our local churches.

It seems so unfair for those people. They have it bad as it is, the last thing they needed was a tragedy this extreme, or any for that matter. I'm happy the help is pouring in worldwide. I don't pray for them every night, I pray for them every waking minute.
I hope it's okay I responded in a general manner and not just a Diabetic manner.

My sister-in-law and her husband, an ER doc, were in Haiti the Sat before the quake on a medical mission. They were 25 miles NNW of Port-Au-Prince. They said they treated so many people that when they ran out of casting materials, they were using fronds as splints. They said it was like working in a MASH unit. They left Haiti Friday. I spent days glued to the TV watching the horrors, reliving the Northridge quake that I was in, in '94. My heart goes out to the people of Haiti, and when I have a chance to talk to my sis-in-law, my donation goes to their church mission, where I know it will go to the people, the orphanages, the hospitals…S2

Sorry everyone I guess I should have written this under Diabetes Blogs category instead of Discussions. Learning as I go…

I think its ok. Here is just as good a place as any. The people of Hati have my prayers and I wish them the best. I think its going to take years for them to recover if they ever do.

God Bless

I think this is the right place to post your thoughts, Miz Thang. And thank you for it.

What's happening in Haiti is horrible and my heart goes out to the Haitian people. Sitting here in the middle of the US, all I can do is pray for them and to contribute what I can.

If you can give just a little and if you have a cell phone, text "HAITI" to 90999 to donate $10 to @RedCross relief efforts in Haiti. After confirmation, $10 will be billed to you on your cell phone bill. (More info at whitehouse.gov)
